I was on a mountain lake (Bear Lake) and the wind went from nil to 20+ mph in a very short time: virtually no warning. Through the course of things, I learned that the large genoa prevented pointing and even inhibited tacks. The normal jib allowed tacking, and pointing was improved but not ideal.
What is the best way to improve the ability of the DS I to point? Note: I have pretty much a basic boat - no cb modifications, rudder modifications, or adjustable mast step, but it does have a set of barber haulers (does that even help my cause?).
I'm looking forward to any input and suggestions. Maybe this will help me round out my list of off-season "things to do".
